    PPT to Adobe Tag Reading Order Errors

    by valerie.fournand ·

    Hello, I have a ppt document that needs to be accessible to screen readers in PDF. I have tagged the order of my heading, images and text in the order I want it to be read. When I generate the PDF, some text gets left out of the reading order, or the order changes all together. Side note, I have a header and footer tagged as artifacts because I don’t want them read for each page. Any suggestions as to correcting the error?

      That is, use Word or even LibreOffice which as of the last few years can save a PDF. The problem is that you are using PowerPoint which is going to create problems I doubt anyone will tell you is supported.

      Open your PDF document with Adobe Acrobat.
      Choose Tools, Accessibility, Touch Up Reading Order.
      In the Touch Up Reading Order window, choose Show Order Panel.
      In the Order Panel, you can change the reading order by opening the desired page and using drag and drop.
